Waltzing Mouses - I am entering the rodent challenge!

Some of you may know of the dancing rodent -aka Waltzing Mouse - and she now has a challenge blog that I have not got around to entering yet - until today! I love her stamps and the ways she designs to fit the Spellbinders Nestabilities so well.

Now, I know it is not Easter yet but I have started on creating a card for this season. I used the colour challenge at CR84FN #15 - teal, green and yellow

I used some Co'ordination card (obviously green) and dry embossed it on one side with the heart folder in the bug and lightly sanded to bring out the hearts.  I then stamped and embossed the egg from WMS in teal ink and clear EP.  After adding some bling in green and deep yellow, and making the banner using a sentiment from another WMS set, I also added a corner die cut embossed in white ink and clear EP.

Stamps:  WMS - Sweethearts; Nestie Eggs
Paper and Card:  Co'ordination Green card; Stampinback white card; SU Whisper White scrap
Ink:  SU Taken with Teak; Craft White
Other:  Clear EP; corner die cut Laser cut (Crafty Originals); Annabelle's sprinkles and Kaiser bling; double sided tape

One down, only a few more to go!

Lovely card. The bling against the pattern on the egg is sweet and the heart embossing is a nice contrast too.
